Regina v Powys County Council, Ex Parte Hambidge (No 2): CA 16 Mar 2000

Where a local authority raised the care charges for facilities and services provided to disabled people charging different rates according to the benefits received, and where some benefits were received according to the level of disability, that differentiation did not amount to disability discrimination. The differences arose form the different levels of benefits paid to those asking for these services.
